Northern MLAs push for tax cuts

A group of MLAs from Northwest Territories are pushing for the NWT Northern Resident Allowance, which is added to the basic person tax exemption, to be increased. The Northern Resident Allowance amount was set back in the 90s and has never been indexed to inflation.

The CTF has long advocated for increasing the Basic Person Tax exeption to $16,000. This would completely remove anyone working full-time for minimum wage from paying income tax.
